earth enjoying life.. whatever god blesses
you with. Enjoying life for me is just normal.
Al-Fayed - Life
I think you have to work with people, and
when I talk about managing relationships,
dont think the derogatory managed
relationships. It is a question
of sharing emotion and feelings. The common
denominator of everything cant be
money, and it should not be money.
Ambani - Work
The number one benefit of information technology
is that it empowers people to do what they
want to do. It lets people be creative.

learn things they didn't think they could
learn before, and so in a sense it is all
Ballmer - Technology
We are governed, our minds are molded, our
tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely
by men we have never heard of. This is a

they are to live together as a smoothly
Bernays - America
No serious sociologist any longer believes
that the voice of the people expresses any
divine or specially wise and lofty idea.
The voice of the people expresses the mind
of the people, and that mind is made up

and by those persons who understand the
manipulation of public opinion. It is composed
of inherited prejudices and symbols and
clichés and verbal formulas supplied
to them by the leaders.

for the sheep.
Blanchard - Leadership
Ridiculous yachts and private planes and
big limousines wont make people enjoy

Canfield - Confident
Self-esteem is a huge piece of my work. You have to believe it's possible
and believe in yourself. Because after you've decided what you want, you have
to believe it's possible, and possible for you, not just for other people. Then
you need to seek out models, mentors, and coaches.
Canfield - Self
Esteem - Belief
How come when it's us, it's an abortion,
and when it's a chicken, it's an omelet?
Are we so much better than chickens all
of a sudden? When did this happen; that

ways we're better than chickens.. See, nobody
can do it! You know why? 'Cause chickens
are decent people.

poverty, social oppression, dictatorship, and a void of meaning in the lives of
Chopra - Life

where every manager has to oversee massive
amounts of information as well as people,
facilitating the use of psychic energy becomes
a primary concern.
Csikszentmihalyi - Management
Creating a close connection to those you
do business with has its many risks, rewards
and consequences. There are few things in
business I have encountered that are more
difficult than firing someone, particularly
if that someone has always been, or has
become a friend. On the flipside, I have
been rewarded with many friends
Cuban - Challenges
People who grow rich almost always improve
their sex life. More people want to have
sex with them. Thats just the way
human beings work. Money is power. Power
is an aphrodisiac. Money did not make me
happy. But it definitely improved my sex

We must respect each other's right to choose a collective destiny, and the
opportunity to develop the legal and political rights for Indigenous and non-Indigenous
peoples so that we may enjoy the right to maintain our culture, our heritage and
our land, as a united Australia.
Huggins - Compassion
- Human Rights
The true essence of reconciliation is more than making friends with nonindigenous
people. Our motto is united Australia, one that respects the land and the heritage
of its indigenous peoples and provides justice and equity for all. I think reconciliation
is about changing the structures that govern us and trying to influence opinion
leaders in whatever way we can.
Huggins - Respect

I don't go to a lot of events, and I'm not out in public all the time doesn't
mean I'm anti-social or a recluse.
Kerkorian - Friendship

something that he will die for, he isn't
fit to live.
Luther King Jr - People
We aren't engaged in any negative protest
and in any negative arguments with anybody.

be men. We are determined to be people.
We are saying that we are God's children.
And that we don't have to live like we are
forced to live.
Luther King Jr - People
It's fun when you're driving, and people
wave at you, and you wave back. I think

why I'm in show business.

We must never forget our responsibilities as politicians to our country and its
citizens. We must always remain humble before our people.
Merkel - Politicians
I think transitions are never that noticeable, but they are always on their
way. It has to do with distance and accessibility. People call it mellowing, but
I think it's how available you are toward other people, or how much you distance
Newman - Change
There's no genius behind it. It's persistence and listening to people.
Newmark - Improvement

to do that, they first have to develop some
measure of trust, either in the other person
or the system.
Omidyar - Technology
What makes eBay successful.. the real value
and the real power at eBay is the community.
It's the buyers and sellers coming together
and forming a marketplace.
Omidyar - People
When I started eBay, it was a hobby, an
experiment to see if people could use the
Internet to be empowered through access
to an efficient market. I actually wasn't
thinking about it in terms of a social impact.
It was really about helping people connect
around a sphere of interest so they could
Omidyar - People
People, regardless of political views, matter
in this state and in this country and in
this world. And, you know, when people attack
people's basic rights and livelihoods, I'm
concerned about it. And as a citizen of
Queensland and nothing else, I've got the
right to express my view.
Palmer - People
I've got enough money in my life to retire
now and do nothing. But I've got a duty
and obligation to see if we can create more
jobs in this state, and the government's
got an obligation to approve projects and
to assess them for the benefit of the people
Palmer - People
We are imperfect beings in a very imperfect
world, and the one thing we can count on
is that things will go wrong, and that each
and every one of us will have problems.

Like most business people, I want every
aspect of my business to be perfect. I know
that this goal is unachievable, but it is
nevertheless what I strive to achieve.
Parsons - Ambition

business anywhere that is without problems.

business everywhere is staffed with imperfect
human beings and exists by providing a product
or service to other imperfect human beings.

Money will make you more of what you already
are. If you're not a nice person, moneys
going to make you a despicable individual.
If you're a good person, moneys going
to make you a better person.
Proctor - Money
Upwards of two hundred species.. mostly
of the large, slow-breeding variety.. are
becoming extinct here every day because
more and more of the earth's carrying capacity
is systematically being converted into human
carrying capacity. These species are being
burnt out, starved out, and squeezed out
of existence.. thanks to technologies that
most people, I'm afraid, think of as technologies
of peace. I hope it will not be too long
before the technologies that support our
population explosion begin to be perceived
as no less hazardous to the future of life
on this planet than the endless production
of radioactive wastes.
Quinn - Nature
The world is not in any sense in danger from itself. The world is in fact
not in any danger at all. It is we who are in danger.
Quinn - World
Man's destiny was to conquer and rule the world, and this is what he's done..
almost. He hasn't quite made it, and it looks as though this may be his undoing.
The problem is that man's conquest of the world has itself devastated the world.
And in spite of all the mastery we've attained, we don't have enough mastery to
stop devastating the world.. or to repair the devastation we've already wrought.
Quinn - Nature

for the challenges of the future.
Schwarzenegger - Government
I think that if it is.. has to do with global warming, or if it has to do
with raising the minimum wage, or if it has to do with lowering prescription drugs
for vulnerable citizens.. all of those things are people issues, not Democratic
issues or Republican issues.
Schwarzenegger - Environmental

being named Howard, I always wanted to crawl into a hole.

The worst things in history have happened
when people stop thinking for themselves,

level, and you will have contributed to
world sanity as well as your own.
